    -------------
    Taken from English Surnames by C.M. Matthews, 1967: (appropriately in
    the Human Behaviors chapter)
    "One of the Anglo-Saxon's favorite words for describing heroes and
    warriors was HARD, in the sense of unyielding and therefore [again]
    courageous. It has been a hard-worked word ever since, and in fact I can
    hardly form a sentence without it; but this 'hardly' which I have just
    used in such a weak sense was once worthy to qualify actions performed
    with intense courage and suffering. The Normans [Vikings] had a cognate
    word 'hardi', and between them they have left us many honorable surnames
    of which HARDY and HARDING (the brave one) are the most numerous."
